Tontouta mouv': the B2B transportation plan
Tontouta Mouv’ is the the B2B transportation plan (PDIE) of the Airport Platform Nouméa-La Tontouta.
This common approach has been initiated by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of New Caledonia in order to better understand and optimise the transport of employees, visitor and passengers at the airport.
For the companies of the platform, this is a way to participate in the implementation of a transport system aiming at an improvement of this very same system. This project will allow the creation of an action plan, based on a diagnosis of the habits and needs of each party involved.
The context and the idea of the CCI
Over 1000 people work at the Airport Platform Nouméa - La Tontouta and travel each day from their homes to work using their own car most of the time. These trips take place at irregular times depending on air traffic and are a source of stress, fatigue, risks (accident), costs and greenhouse gas emission.
The CCI, employing 100 people at the airport in Tontouta, has decided in 2016 to find mobility solutions for an access to the airport. The CCI already supported companies and created an awareness for environmental problems and involved the Ademe and the government in this project, together with 11 companies and organisations present at the airport, in order to find common solutions for the transport of personnel. Thus, Tontouta Mouv' concerns about 800 people.
